Technical How about a photo of your ride and the size of your wheels & tires

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Jun 28, 2019.

  1. I get PM's on a regular basis asking me what size the wheels & tires are on my old Deuce pickup and I realize there is no dedicated thread to help fellow members with making the decision of wheels and tires, hopefully if enough members participate we can have a definitive thread dedicated to the subject. HRP

    The wheels are 5" x 15" on the front with wrapped with Coker Classic bias ply 6.60 and the rear wheels are 6" x 15" with L 78/ 15 Coker Classic bias ply tires. HRP

    225/75R15's in the back; 185/75 R15's in the front with Aerostar coils.

    I forgot to add, if anyone cares, stock '51 wheels in the front and an unknown set (stamped "Ford") in the back that are 1/2" wider than the fronts.

    So in late 1959,my tires were what I thought look good from the used pile behind the local tire store.
    Fronts on my hot rod were 15 rim with tire off VW,and rear was a pair of General Dual 90s about 725x15s,fattist biggie in the pile{ Always thought it very funny[ twin tread with twice the traction!] had big grove around center of the two tread patterns on one tire,LOL.
    Still run about same sizes hight and wide today on same rod,but radials now,,and when I got my sexy Slot alum rims in a trade,the fronts are now 14x5 and rear 15 x 9 rims.
    No you can't tell ,as I go by if I have byplys crap or radials,but I can feel better ride. picnicpark.jpg

    Dana,

    I was lucky back in those days as we lived about 3 miles from a tony lakeshore town. It was so upscale that it had a foreigh car dealer since about 1956. I got friendly with the mechanics and parts guy, and I was always the first in line for Volkswagen and other assorted used foreign car tires. It's amazing what "rich people" would discard.

    Pic -look left

    215-60 -15 front, 255 - 60-15 rear, 6" or 8" wheels, can't remember right now.
    Next set of tire will probably be 225-60-15 front and 275-60-15 rear on some kind of 5 spoke wheel, hopefully Torq Thrusts.
